Tech Bytes: Meta Verified

[anvplayer video=”5168556″ station=”998130″]

“Meta Verified” is up and running. The subscription service allows users to add that blue check mark to their Facebook and Instagram accounts. It costs about $12 per month on the web, and about $15 on mobile. There’s a verification process to complete, and you have to be at least 18.

A new Tik Tok feature allows users to reset their “For You” feed if they don’t find their recommendations relevant. Past interactions will be wiped out. Recommended videos going forward will be as though a user just signed up. The feature can be enabled from content preferences.

An update to Youtube Music allows users to automatically download recently played songs on Android. Premium subscribers just need to find the “Recently Played Songs” toggle under “settings, downloads, and storage.” It appears to be independent of the “smart downloads” feature.
